Bundesliga Match Day 27 Review

Bayer Leverkusen v Borussia Monchengladbach

Matchday 27 brought another shake up in the standings as Leverkusen leapfrogged Gladbach with a definitive 3-1 victory. The visitors Leverkusen started strongly with a 7th minute goal from the clinical Kai Havertz. Leverkusen dominated the remainder of the first half and carried a 1-0 scoreline into halftime. In the 52nd minute, Gladbach clawed one back through a fine half volley by striker Marcus Thuram. Unfortunately for the thousands of cardboard spectators at Borussia Park, the Foals could not sustain their rhythm and Leverkusen surged back. A late lunge from Gladbach centerback Matthias Ginter gave Bayer a penalty kick in the 55th minute, allowing Havertz to restore a 2-1 lead. Leverkusen continued to threaten Gladbach and certified their victory with a strong header (or shoulder) from captain Sven Bender in the 81st. Gladbach will be disappointed in their inconsistent showing, while Leverkusen will use this victory to put the pressure on Leipzig in 3rd place.

RB Leipzig v Mainz 05

The Red Bulls trounced lowly Mainz with a resounding 5-0 victory. Striker Timo Werner garnered Man of the Match honors as he collected a hat trick. Werner started the scoring in the 11th minute with a calm finish and Yussuf Poulsen scored his second in two matches with a 23rd minute header. In the 36th, Leipzig made it 3-0 with a goal that exemplifies their aggressive, high pressure defending and fluid, pacy attacking in transition. Marcel Sabitzer made a fine tackle at the halfway line, started the counter attack with a through ball down the left, and finished the move himself with a classy finish into the side netting. From then on, Mainz were officially broken and Leipzig controlled the match in second gear. Werner completed his hat trick with goals in the 48th and 75th minutes and American midfielder Tyler Adams looked lively in his substitute appearance. Leipzig supporters will be thrilled with their side’s response after a sluggish opening game last week. Mainz supporters will know they caught a very good side on a very good day, and will hope for redemption versus Union Berlin on Wednesday.

Bayern Munich v Eintracht Frankfurt

On Saturday, Bayern showed why they are favorites for the title in a definitive performance against Eintracht Frankfurt. For all their attacking efficiency, however, they revealed some defensive vulnerabilities by conceding 2 set piece goals in the 2nd half. In the 17th minute, Bayern stalwart Thomas Muller’s hard run down the left flank provided an assist for a very nice finish by midfielder Leon Goretzka. Muller added to the scoring himself in the 41st minute off of a cultured cross by Canadian talent Alphonso Davies. Just after the halftime break, Frankfurt were again caught ball watching as Kingsley Coman delivered an inch perfect cross for Lewandowski to finish in the 46th minute. Overly confident at 3-0, Bayern relaxed and allowed 2 free kick goals in the span of three minutes to Frankfurt centerback Martin Hinteregger. At 3-2, it was a game again, but Bayern left back Davies took the game on his shoulders with a marauding solo goal in the 61st minute. Frankfurt’s Hinteregger achieved a hat trick in the 74th minute- but for the wrong side, making it 5-2 in Bayern’s favor. The result will propel Bayern into their massive rivalry match versus Dortmund on Tuesday. Eintracht, on the other hand, will need to regroup quickly before hosting Freiburg.
